Here is a list of the questions presented in the new grants (where that information was readily available):
(1) Bank Markazi v. Peterson: Whether 22 U.S.C. § 8772—a statute that effectively directs a particular result in a single pending case—violates the separation of powers.
(2) Sturgeon v. Masica: From state info online: John Sturgeon was operating his jet boat on the Nation River in Yukon-Charley National Preserve. The Nation River is navigable and its bed and banks belong to the State. A National Park Service ranger warned him that jetboats were prohibited and that if he returned he would be prosecuted. Sturgeon believed ANILCA §103(c) prevented the assertion of this Federal power over him. This litigation followed.
(3) Heffernon v. Paterson: From online cert petition: Whether the First Amendment bars the government from demoting a public employee based on a supervisor’s perception that the employee supports a political candidate.
(4) Utah v. Strieff: A link to the press report.
(5) Americold Logistics v. Conagra Foods: From online cert petition: Whether the Tenth Circuit wrongly deepened a pervasive circuit split among the federal circuits regarding whether the citizenship of a trust for purposes of diversity jurisdiction is based on the citizenship of the controlling trustees, the trust beneficiaries, or some combination of both.
(6) Nebraska v. Parker: From online cert petition: In Solem v. Bartlett, the Court articulated a three-part analysis designed to evaluate whether a surplus land act may have resulted in a diminishment of a federal Indian reservation...The Court found that the "statutory language used to open the Indian lands," "events surrounding the passage of a surplus land Act," and "events that occurred after the passage of a surplus land Act" are all relevant to determining whether diminishment has occurred. The questions presented by the petition are: 1. Whether ambiguous evidence concerning the first two Solem factors necessarily forecloses any possibility that diminishment could be found on a de facto basis. 2. Whether the original boundaries of the Omaha Indian Reservation were diminished following passage of the Act of August 7, 1882.
(7) MHN Gov't Servs. v. Zaborowski: Whether California's arbitration-only severability rule is preempted by the Federal Arbitration Act.
